Victoria Bridge is a picturesque photography spot Victoria Bridge is one of the oldest railway bridges in Malaysia, which cuts across the Perak River at Karai. Built in 1897, it was named after Queen Victoria, to coincide with her Diamond Jubilee Year. Connecting the western Malay states to Penang, Victoria Bridge was once used for the transportation of tin ore until it closed in 2002. The bridge is popular among avid photographers thanks to its nostalgic and old-world vibes. Those familiar with the Malaysian film industry might even recognise it as the film location of 2014’s The Journey.
